The food is representative of East Java. The Bebek (duck) was average, however the chicken sate was much better. Cleanliness is acceptable, staff and service are average.

Small menus, but good food and selections. Small space but will not bother you, because its a typical WARUNG in Indonesia. Great service, warm and just comfortable. During dinner time is better.

This Cafe is tucked away down a side street in Karama area. It is a small cafe,& it was frequented by Indonesians which is always a good sign! The service was prompt & friendly.
